I love my 2 yr old 562, still going strong.
 I took this pic at the start my day with new b/c doing 6 hours of cut and skid in -40 below windchill.

I also love my 562xp I have used it full time since around November working 5 to 6 days a week and the only thing I have done to it is clean the air filter (when i think of it) and i trimed a couple loops off the metering spring to fix the bog off idle

I have over 100 hrs on my 562xpg with no problems. Using 87 octane w/blue stabil mixed in also. I have found that it starts easier if i put it on high idle each time .

That's what the manual tells you to - but many people don't like to look in the manual, assuming they know everything.... :D
